  • Luanne, Luanne
    Why do you run and hide?
    Luanne, Luanne
    Don't keep your love inside

    I wait around for you after school
    You slip away and I don't see you
    Don't know what I'm gonna do
    If you can't see how much I need you
    We met one day and then you ran away
    I've searched the whole town looking for you
    I know you're there somewhere

    Luanne, Luanne
    Why do you run and hide?
    Luanne, Luanne
    Don't keep your love inside

    I write letters that I never send
    I keep the words to whisper to you someday
    I don't know where and I don't know when
    Luanne, I'm gonna get to you someway
    I want to feel your love so close to me
    Give me just half a chance
    To prove myself, I need to

    Luanne, Luanne
    Why do you run and hide?
    Luanne, Luanne
    Don't keep your love inside

    These days true love is so hard to find
    Someday I know you're gonna be mine
    Luanne, Luanne, Luanne, oh

    Luanne, Luanne
    Why do you run and hide?
    Luanne, Luanne
    Don't keep your love inside

    Luanne, Luanne
    Don't need to run and hide
    Luanne, Luanne
    Don't keep your love inside

    Luanne, Luanne
    I wanna be beside you, can't you understand?
    Luanne, Luanne
    Give me a little love, I know you can
    Luanne, hey Luanne
    Can't you hear me calling?
